Love Island Stars Promote Bad Credit
Several people from TV show Love Island have been criticised for promoting buy now, pay later firm Klarna, a company which itself is under scrutiny for pushing customers into unnecessary debt.
Although the ‘celebrities’, including Belle Hassan, Lucie Donlan, and Amy Hart, marked the promotion with #ad, they have included discount codes to push the service to their millions of followers.
Martyn James from Resolver (online complaints tool) said: “It’s totally irresponsible for influencers to take cash to plug high-interest credit products on their profiles.
“There’s a huge difference between plugging an expensive pair of shoes and borrowing beyond your means to pay for them.
“With little to no warnings about the risks, shoppers could find themselves sleepwalking in to debt.”
